Do your changing workloads make you wonder if your business processes are still ‘fit for purpose’?
Do you want to find a method to guide you when you are looking to get more work completed during the working day?
Are you looking to achieve more tangible results from your business improvement projects?
Sometimes it can feel that your business improvement projects aren’t making enough of a change. There is a simple approach that can take the guesswork out of changing a process; it is called ‘Takt Time’.
By using some basic facts and figures you can determine exactly how much of a shift you need to make to your processes, and ultimately guide your thinking to create the right degree of change.
This short book, written by an experienced business consultant, gives you a step by step guide to determine your new business process design. By using takt time as the basis for this re-design you will identify the right amount of change required for your business.
Takt time is at the core of lean manufacturing improvements, and can be applied to any process in any sector. If you are outside of the manufacturing industry and have never heard of takt time then please read the case study in the book; this approach is applicable to all business sectors.
If you have never improved a business process before there is also an overview of how to go about doing this too.
It's time to get started
